Re: Greetings :) (and advice!)

A nice wooden, weighted, clockwork metronome manufactured in Bavaria or someplace like that would be my dream metronome, but any of those others might make fine a substitute if one is willing to forgo some of the finer nuances that come available from a traditional metronome.

Re: Name of flutist who appears to be breathless

Should this be done while only using the headjoint lest the corks, pads, skins, etc become waterlogged?

Re: Re-skinning pads

You're saying the sac which contains all the viscera? Next time I order some fish, tell the cook I'd like to keep that and take home for flute maintenance?
